What exactly is an Abundant Life? Please be specific.
That sometimes can be a challenge, expressing these qualities can help grow the abundance, something I can fall short of sometimes.

Galatians
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

I often ponder this very thing. I think abundant life isn’t what we picture it as sometimes. For certain , to have abundant life we must reside and abide in our Messiah. But I think on Job. He was a man who had everything and was benevolent and took care of the needy and homeless and widows. He also prayed constantly and interceded for his children. He was a righteous servant before our Father. However everything was taken away from him. He never lost faith, and stayed humble, and in the end always gave the Father glory for all things whether seemingly good or bad. The Most High rewarded his faith by blessing him more abundantly after the trials than he was prior. To me this is a picture of true abundant life. Sometimes life may be dark and dreary but that doesn’t mean our Father and our Savior have left us, but on the contrary it may be due to being a good servant to Them and thereby under affliction from the enemy, but if we stay humble and true to our Creator, we will be blessed, therein equaling life more abundant than before.

Abundant is about the amount and the quality. This life lasts up to like 120 years, but life in heaven will never end- that is abundant life.

Good answers everyone. Being human, I often think when a Christian speaks of an abundant life, the material emphasis will come into play. Having a mind, soul, spirit united with the HS IMO is true abundant life. Money, material things cannot buy that kind of peace.

Abundant life...I get a picture of a tree with lots of fruit. It maybe thirty fold, sixty fold or a hundred fold. In any case., there's fruit. Fruits of the holy spirit.

Taste and see the Lord is good!
